Suzuki Verona, Sedan
#862 of 1859 The Reflash of the Computer
Aug 23, 2004 (3:28 pm)
has stopped the rough idle and fluctuation of the RPM in my Verona. I can't tell if it runs different after warm up and on the road yet as I haven't driven it that much. I had the oil changed at the same time they had the car and that brings up another point. The owners manual says 6.8 qts of oil and the service writer says they put 8. something qts of oil in the car. I asked about the difference. The Suzuki rep that was there was no help as he stated "when the oil is replaced be sure the automatic filler gun is set on ZERO or fill it to the full mark on the dip stick counting how many qts are needed to reach that mark. I will change it myself next time and will track how many qts it will take. I looked through the paper work for the previous oil changes by the dealer and it states 5 qts of
oil. I think the service department of the dealers (mine is a Chrysler dealer also) do not pay attention to the specifications of the different automobiles they sell. I know the Verona was new for 2004, but they should have all the service items worked out by now. I purchased my Verona in Oct 03. Oh well, I will keep asking questions about the car and maybe I will get the right answers and I still enjoy driving the Verona.

On the web i read today that a recall of 2004 veronas has been sent by suzuki for reprogram of the ecm. It said that a incorrect fuel/air mixture was being sent during deceleration and could cause a stall and/or a crash. I bought my Verona on July 30 and it has been chugging on deceleration and running a little rough at start up. I called suzuki to find out when my recall would be sent out but they were already closed. Left them a message to call me back. Love the car!!! Will be glad when ecm is reprogrammed.

I am glad to hear there will be a recall. At least Suzuki is going to do the right thing by their Verona owners.

#867 of 1859 Ref: Recall of the ECM
Aug 25, 2004 (5:50 pm)
I think that is what has been tqlked here as the "Reflash of the Computer" or "Reboot of the Computer." It will be the "KE" campaign. That is what the Suzuki rep did to my Verona EX last week.

Hi Verona lovers,
Factory tech reprogrammed ECM for mine but still stalls even more than before. It's at the dealer since Aug 10, 2004. Luckly, I got a rental since then. All attempts failed to find the root cause. Another factory tech has been dispatched.
I baught mine about 2 months ago and put 2300 miles on it before experiencing the Engine Stalling 4 times on me right on the major highly traffic street. I barely pulled over and escaped from the honkers.
This Red baby looks good but drives like a Turkey.
